Hello, I am new to VB.NET programming.  I would like to run an existing crystal report from within the application.  I have created the form with the crystal report viewer and have added a command button.  I would like to have the user just click the button and have the report run.  I tried using this on the button:

CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = "\\FR\d\creports\WD\totalsales.rpt"

I then get prompted for the database login info, however, when I enter the data it fails.  Can someone help me with the code to connect to an ODBC that is located on this workstation?
